stress and chocolate, and all those other bad things, aggravate acne. so if you have acne, you will notice that during high stress periods, or eating greasy and fried foods, and sweets, your skin will react really bad, but of course it does not mean for everyone.

my brother in law eats only chocolate, fat foods, and fried foods all day. and he only drinks soda. he never drinks water. he has the most flawless skin, so go figures. he is overweight, but skin wise, not one pimple.

as for me, i've had acne since i was 16, i am 29 now. my acne gets worse if i eat unhealthy, don't drink water, etc. so i eat the cleanest and healthiest diet possible, with tons of water. i also take supplements that are good for you in general, but also for acne.

if i don't do this, my acne will be very bad. but now i have just mild acne, that is controllable, with topicals.

you are only 19, so your body is going through a lot of changes still. but you say your using zindaclin. but for how long? and what else do you use? are you using a good cleanser? do you use a mask once a week? even if you wash your face twice a day, it does not mean, your not going to get acne. acne is caused by a number of things, and if the oil gets inside the pore, it creates bacteria, then causing a pimple to form. but if we over wash, we remove our skin from its natural oil, and this can cause more oil to form, and more breakouts.

your acne does not look severe, but mild to moderate.

so try to include a good cleanser, with salicylic acid, use the topical, and do a clay mask with manuka honey once a week. also try to look into natural supplements. oregano oil works great for acne, as does zinc.

and when you shave, use a clean razor, or soak the razor in alcohol before use.
